MESQUITE (1080 KRLD) - Plans for a new memorial for military veterans in Mesquite are getting a financial boost.

Atmos Energy has signed on to be the title sponsor of the new Veterans Memorial Park.

"They are making a significant contribution to the financial efforts of the campaign to build a new memorial," said Wayne Larson with the City of Mesquite. "We have had a whole host of other sponsors at various levels, from local sponsors like our Mesquite Rotary Club and our Mesquite Police association to national brands."

The city secured land for the park earlier this year. Community volunteers began raising money for the project in 2017. Donations are still being accepted online.

"We hope to have a preliminary design ready in 2019," said Larson, "and either have a ground-breaking on Veterans Day in 2019...or be under construction and cut the ribbon on Veterans Day 2019."
